Pretty much just got the best news ever just came in….

and instead of trying to feed you a bunch of fluff that you really don’t care about I am going to break it down plain and simple for all you guys, okay?

Here it goes:

Who:  Goldenvoice ( / is reaching out to the 18-years-old + older residents of La Quinta, Indio, Coachella and Mecca (the surrounding neighborhoods of the Empire Polo Fields), those whom typically can’t afford to attend Coachella Fest/Big 4/Stagecoach, by offering an opportunity for all locals over to attend their LA Rising show for absolutely free.

What: FREE TICKETS and RIDE to the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum for the LA RISING concert this Saturday.  No, this is NOT A CONTEST of sorts….. it’s a gift.  Plain and simple.  Just show up on Thursday to the Riverside County Fairgrounds at the correct day & time with your proof of ID to RSVP your seat on the bus.  Then, show up on Saturday by 11:00am to board the bus to go to Los Angeles to enjoy the concert.  And finally, be awake enough to drive back home at 3:00am when you get dropped back off in Indio.

Where: RSVP at the Riverside County Fairgrounds in Indio TODAY from 3-5pm.  Concert is at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.

When: RSVP your spot on the bus THIS THURSDAY from 3:00pm-5:00pm at the Riverside County Fairgrounds in Indio.  Make sure to show up on time on Saturday, the bus will be departing promtetly at 11:00am!

(and the question I think we are all dying to know….)

Why?!?!?!:  Because Goldenvoice is bad ass!!!!!!!! For reals though, this is an ultra generous gift from them that they really don’t have to do – so remember to say “THANK YOU”.  And to all those who always feel the need to complain about everything every time festival season rolls around – keep your cherping at a minimal this year.  Capeeesh?  I think everyone can agree that all this festival stuff over the past decade has been nothing but a positive movement for the greater good of the Coachella Valley.  Right?!?!  Right.  Power to the people.

And if you don’t believe me….
